There are complaints of nausea, dizziness and decreased appetite after 3 weeks ago cataract surgery, so this condition may be influenced by other medical conditions. In general, patients with cataract operations can undergo one day care or patients can go home after the doctor declares the patient's condition is stable. Thus, the general management of patients with cataract surgery does not pose a risk to the patient's appetite or digestion, especially if there are no complaints or side effects on the operated eye. So, we need to know other causes of complaints that are felt at this time.
In patients with a history of cataract surgery, some side effects that can be felt can include:
1. the lens is mounted shifted
2. inflammation of the eyes
4. sensitive to light or glare
5. eye pressure increases
6. watery eyes
Recovery time can range from 3-4 weeks, depending on the response to treatment and treatment. So that in this recovery period, patients still often feel annoying complaints, however, over time, these complaints will get better until the last control.
Therefore, complaints from other body systems may be triggered by other medical conditions. If after surgery your parents often experience nausea, decreased appetite, then this condition is often triggered by anxiety / stress or indigestion. If your parents are still worried or anxious, often late for food, lack of sleep then this will trigger complaints that are felt now and the longer the recovery. Therefore, it is necessary to conduct an examination and consultation back to the treating ophthalmologist or to an internist for direct examination and ascertain the cause.
The doctor will conduct interviews related to complaints that you feel, physical examination and supporting examinations can be planned to find out the presence or absence of other medical conditions that may affect other than due to stress or anxiety, such as stomach problems, digestive infections, liver disorders, side effects of drugs, blood sugar rise or increase blood pressure. All this will be ascertained by the doctor with the inspection step carried out. The results of the examination and diagnosis will be the reference of care and treatment for your father.
For now, it's best if your father can try things like:
1. Inadequate need for water and nutritious food
2. avoid stress or excessive thought burdens
3. Avoid spicy foods, instant foods, cigarettes, coffee during the recovery period
4. avoid sleeping late
